Paolo was a great host, he picked us up from the train station and gave us a tour of the apt. It is only 5 mins walk from the train station and in walking distance to everything you would want to see in Florence. Paolo also suggested us two restaurants close by which were great and did not have tourist prices - thanks a lot Paolo, we enjoyed the visit a lot!
Paolo was our contact at the flat and he was just amazing. Incredibly friendly - he offered to pick us up at the train station, and helpful - he recommended an amazing little lunch spot 200m from the flat and even helped us translate some of the menu items.
The flat, although charming was very loud! It's on the second floor directly across the street from a loud bar. Since we couldn't open the windows, we had to use the AC to drown out the noise.
The Santa Maria apartment was as described, on the "first", which is second floor. You are totally independent, the owner does not live on site. While the apartment had a decent bed, decent bathroom, but limited hot water, it is located across the street from a bar, which is extremely loud every night, worse on the weekends. They spill out onto the streets, drink and fight as well as are loud with their motor cyles. There is also a hooker who works the corner. The owner was very gracious and met us at the train station, and gave us good advise about restaurants, etc. However, I could not recommend this place because of its location.
We had a nice stay at Santa María. Paolo (the apartment's owner) warmly welcomed us and gave us maps and good advice on places to eat, etc.
Coffee was very appreciated :)
The apartment is opposite a night bar and it got a little bit noisy (not a big deal... and having the bar was actually handy).
Absolutely beautiful apartment in an excellent location. Paolo met us at the station and was very helpful and friendly. The flat was exceptionally clean, beautifully decorated and even prettier in real life than the photos. We had a wonderful stay in Florence!
